    my topic want to be" the transportation plan of Olmpic Host Cities-a campasion between Sydney and London".
    Does anyone give me some ideas?
    does it look too broad and not narrow and deep enough?
    this is the first time to write a thesis, and English is not my native language.
    thanks

    anyone give me some ideas?

    Writing about planning is difficult in general, I've found that out working on my Master's thesis. A lot of the concepts and theories don't translate well into narrative. I would think transportation planning would be a particular pain in the a$$

    Do you have an advisor? I'd think that this would be a good person to ask once you have an idea. While there are certainly advisors who are intentionally hard to contact, this is one of those points when it's critical to be talking to faculty in your department. Not only because they're the ones who will ultimately determine if it is of merit or not, but also because they're more familiar with the limitations of the schools resources (and, if you've had courses with your advisor, also knowledgeable regarding your ability to complete such a thesis.)
    What luck! A random assemblage of words never sounded less intelligent.
